Essie Leathers Collection by Rebecca Minkoff: Review and Swatches
Created by Essie's Global Color Director Rebecca Minkoff, the new Essie Leathers Collection is now available for a limited time only. Inspired by Rebecca's most iconic leather colors, the polishes in this collection feature a special "leather effect" finish. To see some swatches and read my reviews, click.....

Cross-Body Heat:
This is a unique gray-lavender sparsely scattered with subtle iridescent sparkles. The formulation is surprisingly pigmented and dries to a latex, semi-matte finish. I used two coats for the swatches below.

Tote-ally in Love:
A vampy wine red with iridescent sparkles, this shade has a slightly more textured finish. The formulation is nicely pigmented; I used two coats for the swatches below.

In Hot Purse-uit:
A stunning dark blue sprinkled with iridescent blue sparkles, In Hot Purse-uit is ultra-pigmented and super creamy. The finish is smooth and latex-like, one coat provided an almost opaque coverage but I used two just in case.

Back in the Saddle:
This is a deep forest green packed with mesmerizing iridescent shimmers. The formulation is a bit sheer in comparison to the other shades but two coats gave a smooth and lovely finish. Back in the Saddle also has a latex finish and I used two coats for the swatches below.

Overall, this is a pretty awesome collection! It kind of reminds me of the Cashmere Matte line from back in 2015 but the formulation is so much easier to work with! Could this collection mark the resurgence of textured nail polishes? Share your thoughts with me in the comments below!
